Selena Gomez leaked 2 songs from her collection, For You, earlier today which many are suspecting to be about her ex-boyfriend (for now?), Justin Bieber. The first one, "My Dilemma," has lines like, "Here's my dilemma. One half of me wants ya. And the other half wants to forget it." The second one called "I Do" has SelGo singing, "Damn, wish I didn't feel so hypnotized. But when I look at you baby it's justified. So I take what I want and give what I got to help with all the rules that keep us civilized." Does that sound like it's pointing to her relationship with The Biebs? Listen to them below now.

The Pitch Perfect gang is back, Pitches. The movie's first trailer is aca-mazing, we can barely wait for the sequel to hit theaters in May 2015!

A few residents from Surrey, England got lucky recently! Ed Sheeran dropped by the pub and sang an acoustic version of "Thinking Out Loud." Of course, he was perfect singing it. Of course.


Whoa, whoa, whoa, Haylor fans! Rumors have been going around lately that Taylor Swift and Harry Styles were spotted watching a concert of The 1975 together. According to ET Online, someone saw them backstage and they looked like they're working on being friends. ICYMI, another rumor also came out recently that Harry sent T-Swizzle 1,989 roses. But before reacting, there are no photos of the 2 together at the concert (only this photo of Tay with Selena and Ellie Goulding in said concert), so we're still unsure.

Speaking of T-Swizzle, YouTuber Calvin Bremer found his new iPhone assistant—Taylor Swift. It starts out well, but things go downhill quickly. The singer reblogged the vid via Tumblr, saying, "Hahaha this is awesome in its entirety but my resounding thought after watching it is 'that guy has the BEST EYELASHES EVER.'" Just. Hilarious.

Someone recreate the bench from The Fault In Our Stars here in the Philippines, too! The famous bench was unveiled at the US Fox Studio earlier today in an event attended by Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, TFIOS author John Green, and TFIOS director Josh Boone.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
